“I live on what others don’t know about me.” (Peter Handke)
Exterior, night, in the West. A farmer tells his story to a musician. A resounding trauma.
One night, the farmer lost his hearing. As for the musician, he recently lost track of his desire.
Yet on this night—as faceless presences quiver around them—the two strangers hear each other as clearly as for the very first time.
What can listening do?
With its stripped-down story, told face to face, and its music all in sharp frequencies and latent melancholy, L’entente is a fable—in movement—about deafness, attention, and all that rustles deep within ourselves.
